1. "the ideology of hope"
Very interesting.

Republicans are often seen as being about getting and having money while the Democrats are about taking your hard-earned money and giving it to people who didnt earn it. The GOP would have you believe that they are dedicated to creating wealth while their opponents are committed to redistributing wealth. This is a powerful message in a nation framed by the Puritan work ethic.

That appears to be how it's "sold."
